The Bush Family
October 15, 2017
Highlands Ranch, Colorado
Can we talk about how completely photogenic this family is for a second? In all the shots that I took, there wasn’t an unflattering one in the bunch. Which is really impressive with a two-year-old in tow. We met Mike, Jenn and Zoey through some of our best friends, and have gotten to know them while celebrating birthdays, watching football, and exchanging cookies at Christmas. It was so fun to get to do this session, both because we got to chat while we walked around the park, but also because I got to take part in a special announcement!
Matt & Victoria
October 14, 2017
Because my husband is the oldest sibling in his family, I’ve been able to watch his siblings grow up over the course of our relationship. Matt celebrated his 15th birthday the first time I came to Colorado, and since then I’ve watched him graduate high school and college, work incredibly hard to get a great job, and now, find the love of his life. It’s been SO fun. One thing I have learned about Matt over the course of this time, and especially when he lived with us for a while after graduating college, is that he’s a total romantic. I knew that when Matt found the right girl, he’d fall hard, he’d fall fast and she would be showered with love and grand gestures. The first time he brought Victoria “home” to meet us was the day he hatched an elaborate plan to officially ask her to be his girlfriend. She was smiling from ear-to-ear and I’m not sure she’s stopped since. The next year would take them on romantic trips celebrating obscure Canadian holidays that share Victoria’s name, meeting and charming each other’s families, and just falling deeper and deeper in love. Victoria is an absolutely lovely person, and easily won over this sister-in-law during our lunch dates and through her absolute adoration of my brother-in-law and my son (pro tip: to make moms love you, love their kiddos well – Victoria did this from day one). I can’t wait for Victoria and Matt’s April wedding and the completion of the Rabon brother’s wives trifecta.
The Anderson Family

Castle Pines, Colorado
This beautiful family has been with Amanda Rabon Photography from the beginning. I’ve photographed them four times now: when Lily was 6 months, 9 months, 1 year old and now at 3 years old. I couldn’t be more honored to have been able to document Lily growing up and now, to document the family growing! As you’ll see in the pictures below, Lily is making a big announcement!

Idaho Springs, Colorado
One of my very favorite things that I’ve gotten through marriage is more siblings. Growing up, my brother was my absolute best friend. And now, I’m blessed to have two more brothers, three more sisters and one more soon-to-be-sister.
I especially love having a sister that I can text and say something along the lines of “I’m obsessed with a wall in the mountains and I want to take photos there. Are you in?” And we jump in the car, take photos between which we laugh hysterically, and eat mountain pies at Beau Jo’s.
Thanks for a fun adventure, Rebekah!
Standley Lake, Westminster, Colorado
December 22, 2016
I was put into contact with this lovely family through some mutual friends of ours who know them from being stationed together with the Air Force. Tara, her husband, and kiddos were in town for Christmas and her mom wanted family pictures as her gift. This family was not only super photogenic, but as sweet as can be as well. The Colorado weather kept changing every few minutes from overcast to sun, but despite the chilly air, they kept on smiling and having a good time. There was even a dance party to Justin Timberlake at the end!

This delightful couple and their English bulldog were so fun to get to know a little bit. Dave is the brother of Phil, whose family photos I did in October, so getting to meet him and his wife, Michele, was a treat. Their pup, Mack, was a total pro at posing and though Colorado weather kept us on our toes, we were able to get some lovely photos of this beautiful family.
Jenny + Matthew
November 12, 2016
What an honor to get to photograph this couple as they prepare for the birth of their first child, a baby boy. I’m probably a little biased, but I think having a son is SO fun, and I can’t wait for Jenny and Matthew to have just as much fun with baby Aidan as I get to have with my little guy. We explored a new location together and the combination of water, sunlight and a few trees with leaves remaining proved to be a perfect spot for our shoot.
The Archuleta Family
October 22, 2016
I was fortunate enough to meet this beautiful couple through a dear friend of mine, who is Jess’ cousin. When Jess contacted me about family photos with their 6 month old boxer/mastiff mix, I was pretty excited as my family has raised boxers for years. Mary Jane proved to be a total joy to take photos of and to get to play with between shots. Phil and Jess just adore their sweet girl and it’s easy to see why. This shoot was fun and laid-back, just like the couple featured in these photos.
The Hayes Family
September 24, 2016
This sweet little guy turned one last month, so his parents wanted to get some photos taken of their newly minted one-year-old and some family photos as well. They suggested we take them in Historic Downtown Littleton, which was a great place with lots of brick and unique touches. We ended up with a perfect morning for walking Main Street and doing all kinds of silly things to make him laugh! There may have been bubbles and balancing stuffed animals on my head involved!
Nicole & The Boys
September 15, 2016
You may remember this beautiful family from the family photos I took of them when their youngest son was born. Nicole has since started a blog chronicling her adventures in being the mom to two boys. She approaches motherhood from a place of realness and grace. You should check her out over at Embracing Chaos. She asked me to take some lifestyle photos of her morning with the boys for her blog and I couldn’t wait to spend time with this family!
